Default 88 302 Top End cleanup and paint

Starting this thread for when I get around to cleaning the top end of my 88's 302, will be replacing the valve cover gaskets, upper intake gaskets, replacing the plastic hard vacuum lines with rubber hoses, explorer injector's, some paint on both the upper intake and the valve covers, I'll also be replacing the oil pan gasket as it's leaking, sanding and painting the harmonic balancer, etc. There's gonna be a few surprises along the way. Planned paint colors are Dark Gray and Red with 289/302/351w "Power By Ford" valve covers, the "Power By Ford" is gonna be Red and the rest will be the Gray. Plan on the same scheme on the upper intake.

So, be on the lookout for when I start this, I'm fixing to start the parts gathering phase, will be posting the P/N's of what I purchase along with pics.
